About This Item

Designed from the ground up to meet the demanding needs of America's school string teachers, Hoffmann Concert cellos represent advanced level quality at a student instrument price. With careful wood selection, hand-craftsmanship, carving and bass bar design and installation, the focus is on tone and performance. Fine, hand-applied spirit varnish with expert antiquing compares favorably to cellos retailing at $5,000 and higher. We are confident in saying that this is the finest student cello on the market today.

This Franz Hoffmann cello does not come with any accessories, it is the cello only.
